Welcome.US and its partners are launching the new Welcome Connect platform to connect U.S. sponsors with Ukrainians seeking refuge.
Matches made through Welcome Connect will help Ukrainians qualify for resettlement through the federal Uniting for Ukraine program, which requires a sponsorship in order to qualify.
Welcome Connect is a first-of-its-kind platform that can be adapted for future work related to private sponsorship for other refugee groups.
For more information for displaced Ukrainians and Idahoans who want to help, please visit our resource page.
Welcome.US is a national initiative founded to unite, inspire, and empower Americans to support those seeking refuge here, beginning with Afghan refugees evacuated to the United States after the fall of Kabul in August 2021.
